    There is no such thing as a male brain and there are plenty of stupid things in the dsm v shop lifting for profit is in there rather than just cleptomania

    Yes there are. All it takes is a quick google search to not look like an idiot? http://www.dubheannk.com/how-male-an...k-differently/

    Agreed there is plenty of stupid stuff in the dsm but it was designed to ensure practically everyone could be diagnoes with something to make the pharmaceuticals make more money out of us and for therapists to get more money

    Why would a happy person kill themselves?
    No person is happy 24/7. Some people just make very bad spur of the moment decisions.2

    Sorry, when did I specifically address you?

    I was pointing towards calling out trans* people as having a "problem". It is just unnecessary when people know it will upset individuals who have been through or are going through the experience.
    Well, mental disorders is a problem though. And, what do you do when you have a problem? You look for a solution. Don't you want these people to get the correct help and treatment that they need to get better?

    Brain scans change depending on what you have eaten, mood, task you are carrying out, what you did earlier on, what you are thinking etc.

    I did neurology as part of my course.

    It's your opinion that transgenderism is a problem/mental disorder, not mine. I agree they should receive help and support to become their true gender, and also to deal with any issues such as bullying.

    Not hate, but yourself for example arguing with an individual who has accepted himself as male and you are telling him that he is wrong.
    Well she is wrong, the same as a schizophrenic is wrong when they think there is secret messages only for them on the 9pm news

    And we are back to people saying gender is different from sex. If that was the case then you can define someone's personality by being male or female which you can't.

    Yeah that's your opinion which I respect. I just don't think there's a reason to post your opinion when you know you'll upset people. Basic human compassion.

    He didn't push his beliefs and he also clearly stated that everything he said was his own opinion, not fact.
    At which point did I mention him? No point. I was referring to your point about people asking for evidence.

    I believe the only way to solve ideas, politics and social issues is through discourse

    Its not an opinion, its simply a fact. Transexuality is a mental disorder no matter how you define it.

    I definately agree with your earlier posts though that the government needs to do more to adress the issue of bullying transexuals.

    Each to their own, we can agree to disagree. But yes, it's vital that individuals receive support to reduce suicide rates and just in general to reduce unhappy individuals.

    It is. However, people need to stop the assumption that just because it is a mental disorder, doesn't make it inherently abhorred. Transsexuality is hugely different to homosexuality and bisexuality.

    Nonetheless there is sufficient evidence to suggest that there are differences in male and female brain structures, especially the BSTc region
